Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent. Full Story

A bone fragment contains what my good Doctor?

The building blocks for human life such as DNA.

With DNA life can be duplicated. A minor adjustment here or there and you could have a female.

It doesn't sound so crazy after all now does it Doctor?

The bible does not speak of Jesus, in the old testament.
1) the name is wrong
2) the town is wrong
3) the parental lineage is wrong
Those are 3 damning failures proving Jesus could never have been the Jewish messiah.
And that was without even trying....
The name is right. 1

The town is right. 2

The lineage is right. 3

Do you believe in an all powerful compassionate god?

There can be no such god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

Very interesting. I posted over a year ago and some rotten Topix administrators with a moniker "Silent Assassins" sent viruses to me. Fortunately, I have excellent protection. I tell you, watch out for the rats in here. They learned my IP address. That is the only way they could have attacked me. I know it was them because it occurred about 5 min after my post that upset them. I am a freethinker and they could not handle it. Another free thinker I know that was attacked was Pomona Atheist. Remember him? Many christians hated him and they shut him down. I am only here to correct irrational thinking, which to me is scarey. I believe in Freedom of Expression, but religious folk abhor us. Just sayin'.
Thank you,

I really appreciate that. What I find odd about Topix is if they throw you out they should at least tell you. And if you throw the cat out from the front door. Don’t leave the back door open or he will just come right back in, lol.

I too appreciate free thought. I love Atheist and always will. They are fascinating people to converse with.

An all powerful god wouldn't need a rib.
It would just be able to sequence the DNA, etc, without sampling.
More proof of no god or just a silly story?

<quoted text>I do believe it is NEVER a good idea to speak in absolute ignorance as you are now doing. So you are either outright lying or ignorant of the subject, which is it?
Here is the evidence proving you to be either a lier or completely ignorant. ALL of the following are ATHEISTS ORGANIZATIONS
Foundation Beyond Belief. Child welfare-education-environment- health and human rights.
Earthward Inc. Provide humanitarian aid to victims of religious motivated violence-provides food, clean water, and medical aid.
Fellowship of Freethought....blood drives, collects food for local food banks, toy drives for needy children.
International Humanists and Ethical Union....provides food and numerical aid to poverty stricken areas of the world. Member are from 40 countries.
Atheists For The Homeless.....Based in Austin Texas, they provide food and shelter for the homeless.
Atheists Relief Fund
Secular Center U.S.A.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
You really should apologize!!!!!!!
Geeez Doc, you rained on my parade. Did you have to pop all the balloons. We were having fun!

As we have said before about Mr. Gates. He doesn’t know what he believes but most believe him as agnostic.

I wasn’t aware of these small and insignificant Atheist Humanities. I’m sure the $5 or $10 the Atheists Relief Fund collects every year is going to make a big difference.

Now the IHEU.“Our vision is a Humanist world; a world in which human rights are respected and everyone is able to live a life of dignity.”

Human rights in my opinion also is the right for freedom of religion. But few Atheist believe a person should have the right to freedom of religion. So their vision is perhaps misleading?

Now let’s discuss the DFW Atheist Helping the homeless.
Giving your brother-n-law a place to stay and calling it helping the homeless is really not what I would call a charity in in the big scope of things. There are four members to this tiny and insignificant little group.

You Doctor, my good Doctor are blowing smoke up our *ss.

A exaggeration and wishful thinking on your part Doctor. The fact of the matter with the exception of a few individual Atheist. There is no “real” impact by Atheist in the humanities. And there’s not going to be because Atheist are selfish by nature.

Two things wrong with this post.

1st. I have seen and heard theist openly down atheism in public. Frequently, I don't with this open bashing. On the other hand I have never seen nor heard a atheist openly bash theist as I do here, at least not with out a police officer near by, part of an official demonstration. This cowards tuff you post just shows what you are.

2nd. Most Catholics do not consider themselves Christian. I have even heard from a few Catholics they have officially detached.

I always wonder why some people always excpect a handout from someone else,religious people being at the front of the line so to speak.
I support my family and relatives and close friends who deserve it,I would never ask anyone to help me out when down,,I work for my money and expect everyone else to do the same..
its only LAZY bastids who want someone else to support them,you religitards prove that all the time.

btw theres no Atheists only atheists,get it?

Mikko, What do you do for a living? Are you retired? Family man? Have a job? Have hobbies besides Topix. I'm a motorcycle man myself.
